Build a Zilog Z180 CP/M computer

LaughingRadish writes "The P112 board was last available new in 1996 by Dave Brooks. In late 2004 on the Usenet Newsgroup comp.os.cpm, talk about making another run of P112 boards was discussed. I decided to step forward. With Dave Brooks blessing and the assistance of others, new boards were fabricated. Those boards too are gone. Still people want P112 kits. I therefore started a Kickstarter project to supply people with kits. These machines nominally run ZSDOS, a GPLed and enhanced CP/M look-alike. Straight CP/M 2.2 is also available as is a flavor of Unix called UZI-180. If you want an easy-to-get-into piece of classic-computing, this is it. You also build it yourself."

How the heck you can find those Zilog chips?

I still have an official copy of CP/M, in original box and manual ... but I do not know if the diskettes are still usable or not ....
